Booklist Review: "Gr. 2-5. From the opening series of questions (Can you climb a tree without using arms or legs? Snakes can ) to the final page on Snakes and People throughout history, this fascinating book offers an excellent introduction to the subject. Well researched and vividly written, the text surveys the wide variety of snakes in the world and explains the unusual behaviors that characterize various types. Even children who think they know all about snakes will probably learn something new here: constrictors cause death by pressure on their victims' hearts; venomous snakes can bite without releasing their poisons. Sometimes showing dramatic scenes, sometimes presenting seldom-seen details, Henderson's excellent watercolor paintings mirror the text to illustrate both physical characteristics and behavior. With this handsome addition to the series that began with Dinosaurs! Strange and Wonderful (1995), even readers fearful of snakes may find the subject a little less strange, a little more wonderful. --Carolyn Phelan Copyright 2004 Booklist"
